Klocwork ISO/IEC TS 17961 Taxonomy

Developed by Emenda, the Klocwork ISO/IEC TS 17961 Taxonomy allows for the checking and reporting of violations to the ISO/IEC TS 17961 coding standard.

To request a copy of the taxonomy, please fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page.

What is a Taxonomy?

A taxonomy is an organisational structure for your analysis results. They allow you to view the results of your build analysis in unlimited ways. As most Klocwork Users are aware, there are three default taxonomies: C and C++, Java, and C#. Each taxonomy contains multiple categories, and each category contains multiple issue types. A Klocwork administrator can create or import taxonomies, each with a distinct set of checkers, to match an organisation’s reporting needs – in this case violations of the ISO/IEC TS 17961, currently using the existing checkers available to Klocwork Users.
